What makes you, you? Clothes? Hair? Beliefs? Make-up?

Explore objects from all over the world and discuss how people express their identity. Handle real Museum objects such as an initiation mask from Sierra Leone, a Native American headdress, henna patterns and a Zulu love token. Share your ideas and experiences about what makes us human.

Support the session by visiting the Horniman’s World Gallery.
